Lately I have been trying alot of simple variations with pizza dough just looking for something new and simple to make when I am in a hurry. And when I say simple I really mean beyond simple with these Ideas....
Couldn't decide on Tacos or Pizza the other night so we went Taco Pizza... I have been craving some pizza and no one around us sales any sort of vegan cheese for pizzas. And I have made some pizza without cheese before and some have been great but some have been total fails. So I played it safe and took an Idea that we had seen along time ago at Cicis Pizza and made it. The taco pizza turned out really good and it was a nice off set from our normal meals. It was also super easy to make.
1 Pizza dough
Yves Ground Burger
Taco sauce & salsa
1 pack Simply Organic Taco seasoning
Vegan cheese( if you have it)
Toffuti Sour Cream
This really came together fast. Preheat your oven to Pizza crust instructions. Brown up your burger a little. Prepare taco seasoning to package instructions. Add the sauce to burger and heat till done. Prepare the pizza crust on an oiled sheet add some taco sauce and salsa if you would like. You can also use stewed tomatoes. Then add burger to the top and put in oven per dough instructions.Or you can keep the burger off till you get the dough out of the even. This will allow the burger to be more moist. Then add all your toppings.
|Add Taco sauce, salsa, and/or stewed tomatoes|
|See the cooking dries out the burger some. It was still good think I will try not putting the burger in the oven next time.|
|Fresh Lettuce from our garden|
|Fresh Cherokee Purple Tomato from our garden|
|Almost ready to eat|
|Just add a little more taco sauce and some toffuti sour cream and its ready to eat. Yum yum!|
I have been thinking about trying to make them at home for a long time and have given it one try with frozen spinach a ling time ago and didn't like it. So this time I used canned drained can spinach and a store bought white pizza dough ball. They turned out pretty good but didn't even compare to Sbarro's version. I also blended up half a can of stewed tomatoes and added some spices as a dipping sauce. It was ok. I didn't strain the spinach good enough and I think I over stuffed them. They were better once I pulled out some of the spinach.
But if you ever have a chance to go to Sbarro's ask them if they will make you one w/o cheese and egg wash. They have always been great. Even the owner talked to me one day. He is an older man and came up and asked if I was a vegan. I said yes and he is the one who told me they had egg wash on them to make sure I told them I didn't want it. So They are all great.
